In a view I would like to output just the path to the piece of content where the file is referenced like the below:


I DO NOT want to link directly to the file itself.

I thought it would be a simple task but most of the fields are adding html (like <a href="http://www.example.org/file/1">View</a>).

I am filtering by a file type of "Video". I have tried adding the below with no success:

File: Download Link
File: Edit link
File: Link
File: Path

And have also tried using a relationship:

Content: Link
Content: Path

I have been able to get it working by rewriting the File: File ID field and hard-coding the url with the [fid] as a token, but that's a horrible solution.


Please try to locate another relationship named "File Usage: File" After that you should be able to add a field type "File: Path". In the field options you can decide how the output is formatted: as server-path (public://yourpath) or as download path.
